Dow Jones & Co. Inc. Stock Quote Reporter Program


Published 1980


djreporter.png The Dow Jones News & Quotes Reporter is a program that brings you news from the Dow Jones News Wire, the Wall Street Journal, and Barron's, and brings you quotes from the Dow Jones Data Base. The program works with the Apple II or Apple II Plus computer; the Apple Disk II disk drive with a controller set up to use 16-sector diskettes; and equipment that connects the computer to a telephone line. When the Apple is connected to the Dow Jones computer via telephone line, the Apple's video monitor can display news or quotes for any security you select from the lists in the Dow Jones News/Retrieval directory. With the Apple connected to a printer, you can get a printed copy of all the news stories and headlines that appear on the screen.

The stock market information, available via a local telephone call in many areas of the United States, has been delayed 15 minutes to conform to legal requirements.

When using the program, you have a choice of over 6000 securities from the major exchanges. These securities, their symbols, and the Dow Jones News/Retrieval telephone numbers are listed in the Dow Jones News/Retrieval directory. Use the directory as a reference when you are using this program.

If the weather is stormy, an unusual amount of "noise" on the telephone line may cause a problem. If the Dow Jones computer or one of the network computers that connects your Apple to the Dow Jones computer is not working properly, you may receive a message to that effect, or you may be unable to log on. Try another alternate telephone number. If three or four tries at logging on are unsuccessful, hang up the phone, and wait half an hour or so before you try again.
